Just when you thought this year couldn’t get any better, we punch out another returning poet with a brand new, beautiful collection. You might be familiar with Fergus’ previous works with us The Failed Idealist’s Guide to the Tatty Truth and The Thought Which Fell Down the Back of the Sofa (Bx3), and if not, you’ve got plenty to sink your teeth into.
In Everyone Is Now Unhappy, Fergus brings his nonsensical rhymes to the forefront of political and social poetry that we can all relate to. Fergus’s charm comes from his truth and kind heart which shines through in his third collection of poems. The best part might even be that he painted the cover himself, which we’re debating might be our most beautiful cover yet!
‘Fergus McGonigal reaches the parts which other
poets cannot reach.’
CHELTENHAM POETRY FESTIVAL
‘Bold, brash and brilliant!’
WORCESTER LITFEST AND FRINGE
‘Vibrant, wild and funny, and that’s just his hair. Fergus McGonigal is a poet and performer of verve, energy and pizzaz. Shame he can’t spell his name properly.’
